“Please… Tell me what you see.” The expectant mother pleaded.
Hesitant, the seer conceded and placed his hands carefully on her swollen stomach.
Visions overtook his sight. He saw a mewling newborn, clutched to her mother’s chest. He saw a little girl wearing a flower crown in springtime. He saw a valiant knight of the realm, charging into battle. He saw a final breath, with someone holding a hand.
Tears welled in his eyes. Her fingertips caressed his cheek.
“Love, what is it? Is the baby…?”
He pressed a grateful kiss onto her globe of a belly. “Oh, she’s marvelous.”
I’ll be honest, writer bees. In recent months, baby fever has taken over my life. My boyfriend and I are expecting a nephew any day now. We are excitedly waiting for his arrival. This short story was inspired by this upcoming delivery. Sorry in advance if the next post or two is baby themed.
